I love the 80s! Who doesn't? Loud colors, crazy clothes, big hair, and awesome music?
Who can ask for more?
My dream party is an 80s themed party! To me, that theme is the ultimate in fun.
In the 80s, when I was a kid, I was obsessed with loud, bright colors and fun patterns. Do you guys remember those shows "My Two Dads" and "Out of This World?" Those shows had the coolest sets. All bright colors and Memphis design inspired. That was my inspiration for this party.
This fun backdrop is just pure 80's perfection. It's actually two pieces that I taped together on the back. You can grab yours at Shindigz!
To bring the backdrop to the front of the table, I used this fun black and white checkered corrugated cardboard. It's so easy to use and I simple duct taped it all the way around the table.
On the front, I hung this neon Happy Birthday sign.
My very favorite part of this party is the cake!
I covered the bottom layer in white and black fondant and then the second layer is topped completely in Candyfetti!
The topper is a simple pair of 80's shutter glasses!
I love the idea of bringing 80's snacks into the party, so instead of doing "grown-up" food, I did food that made you think of being a kid!
I started with Oreo and Milk shots, in these fun neon shot glasses. I displayed them on these awesome lucite stands.
One of my favorite snacks as a kid was Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies! So, I had to have those! I displayed them in a bed of Chiclets, another 80's favorite.
Sweets Indeed customized these candy kabobs for me in the colors of my party and I displayed them in a simple hat box that I covered in black and white checkered cardstock.
I also personalized a few of the party goods, like these Totally Tubular pink sodas!
And these lemonade mix favors. Gag me with a spoon!
For favors, I love these can coolers! Your can goes right in there and the lid actually closes and flips back when you are ready to drink them.
Hope you thought this party was SO RAD!
